James(UK)

Welcome to Chit Chat Cafe! I’m James.
I was born in the UK and moved to Sapporo in 2004. My hobbies include reading, escaping to the countryside to enjoy nature, playing the guitar, cooking, singing and watching movies.
Chit Chat Cafe is a place where you can practice your English and meet new and interesting people from all walks of life.
We are here to make sure you receive a warm welcome and to give you an opportunity to use the English that you have learnt in a natural environment.
Looking forward to hear your stories!

Bartek(Poland)

Howdy! I’m Bartek from Warsaw.
I moved to Japan in 2015 and after a year at Osaka University I moved to Sapporo to start my studies at Hokudai.
Among my hobbies are travel and communicating with people of different cultures and backgrounds. Each conversation teaches me something new and gives me the opportunity to become a better person. I developed a mean habit of asking people challenging questions to always push them one step further 🙂 
So, are you ready to explore the world of English conversation? Are you ready for the challenge? If the answer is yes, then let’s meet at Chit Chat Cafe!
you an opportunity to use the English that you have learnt in a natural environment.
Looking forward to hear your stories!

Rocky(Australia)

G’Day everyone!
Lachlan (Rocky) here!
I’m from a small coastal city called Newcastle. It’s hot and dry but luckily it’s right on the beach!
I came to Japan last September; just in time for the earthquake and typhoons (maybe I’m bad luck). I’ve traveled around Japan a few times but finally decided to make Sapporo my home.
I enjoy photography and cinematography; you may even see me out shooting around the city. I also enjoy music; currently I’m relearning to play guitar.
I always enjoy learning about new things and meeting new people. Looking forward to chatting with you!

Richan(US)

Hey, I’m Richan!
I’m 22 years old, I love cats, and my blood type is… Just kidding, I don’t know my blood type. I’ve lived most of my life in California, and I moved to Sapporo in June of 2019. (People say it snows a lot here. We’ll see about that!) For the last few years my main hobby has been studying Japanese, and I’m so excited to finally be in Japan. I think that learning a new language is one of the best ways to experience other cultures and get accustomed to new ways of thinking, which is why I’m so happy to have the opportunity to speak English with you. I admit I’m biased, but English really is a fun, expressive language, and on top of that it’s spoken by people from all over the world! My favourite things to talk about are movies, books, travel, and languages. I can’t wait to chat with you!

Hello everybody! My name is Joel and I’m 24 years old. I’m from America. I was born and raised in Tampa, Florida. I also lived in Puerto Rico. So I speak a little Spanish. I came to Japan last year in June to study japanese. I’ve been a lover of anime and manga for most of my life. My favorite manga is One Piece. I also love boxing. I used to box myself. And I plan on continuing boxing as a hobby in Japan. My favorite boxer is Miguel Cotto. I am also really interested in philosophy. Having deep conversations about philosophy is one of favorite topics. After school I’d like to be an English teacher in Osaka. So I’m really looking forward to this experience. Can’t wait to meet you.

Ginie(France)

Hey everyone! My name is Ginie and I’m 20 years old. I’m from France but I’ve been studying English since I was 8 years old. My hobbies are singing, writing and watching movies or series. I came to Japan last October for studies and wish I could become a French teacher in here so I could share what I know to Japanese people.
I’ve known about Japanese culture thanks to my big brother and animes, but when I start studying Japanese in high school I’ve learned about the Shogun area that I found really interesting.
